DOUBLE CHAMBERED AMETHYST CATHEDRAL ― MATCHED PAIR
Rio Grande do Sul, South Region, Brazil

Eons ago: hot flowing lava moved across the land and away from its volcanic source – while forming in the molten lava, air bubbles that evolved into this geode were being stretched as it began to cool. Its unique form captures this transformation. Uncommonly large, this organically shaped Amethyst geode, reminiscent of a saguaro cactus, has the intensity of color that the finest Uruguayan material is known for – but this pair is from Brazil! At a towering 6 ½ feet high, this massive geode has been sawn in half to reveal the tubular chambers filled with large, bright, deep-purple crystals lining the inner walls. Each half standing upright on its own custom metal display stand and measuring an impressive 6 ½ feet tall (200 cm) by 2 ¼ feet wide (70 cm).
